Next online course on mental health at work

24 March 2021

The next Grespi/CMS Mental Health Responder Plus, a half-day online course for HR and managers, will take place on Thursday 20 May.

The MHR Plus will provide guidance to HR and managers on how to deal effectively with employees suffering from mental health conditions, whilst navigating the complexities of clinical problems, duty of care, legal expectations, organisational challenges and business pressures.

In addition, in the current climate of economic uncertainty, employees may face stressful situations such as restructure of the workforce and possible redundancies.

The MHR Plus course will be delivered by video link by two Grespi’s consultant psychiatrists who are specialised in occupational mental health (Dr Lorenzo Grespi and Dr William Badenhorst), and an employment law partners from CMS (Richard Brown).

The course fee is £500 +VAT.
